COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust renovation of the India Pale Ale. Assertive dry-hoppying provides an aromatic telltale nose, indicative of the bitter symphony to follow. Bold hop character with lively grapefruit and citrus notes. 20° Plato, Alc. 9.4% by Vol.

hayduke (3578) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 8, 2009
This 22 oz bottle was via a trade with Strykzone. Thanks. It poured an orange color with a very robust white head and very distinct lacing rings. The nose is of citrus and floral hops, with a hint of pine. Medium mouthfeel and a little alcohol burn. Flavor is bitter and full of citrus. Long bitter finish. A very nice DIPA.

SpringsLicker (3234) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2009
Deep copper body with a good off-white head. Light hop aroma, some fruitiness. Watery weak palate with almost no hop bitterness or malt sweetness going on in the flavor department. Thin. Real disappointment.

Indra (2693) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - OCT 22, 2009
22oz. bottle. Fruity, hoppy and lightly sweet aroma, strong pine and citrus overtones, along with lighter notes of honey, caramel, flowers and leafy herbs. Hazy light-medium orange-amber color, head is fine but lasting. Flavor profile is strongly bitter and full of citric hop flavor as promised, some woody tones and background toasty, caramel malt sweetness becoming apparent, the finish showing a bit of astringency, peppery spice and lingering grapefruit character. Dry, lightly oily palate, body is full but not overly so. Alcohol presence is nowhere to be found. Tasty enough.

travita (4334) - Frisco, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle thanks to blutt59. The smell is hops, pine, and a little light. The look is copper colored with a whitish head. The taste is some bitterness, hops, and pine.

Suttree (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Pretty simple, you know what you’re getting, no frills Double IPA. A little thin bodied, but that’s actually a positve here, I like that better than heavy, syrupy DIPAs. In addition to the expected Caramel and piney hops, there a nice black pepper note in there as well. Tasty

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma has pine and resiny hops to go along with some spicy hops and slick sweet maltiness. The taste is much the same with thick hoppiness I love to sink my teeth into going from pine, resiny sap and grassiness to spicy hops that all run straight into smooth slick malt sweetened hop flavor. Wow, solid IIPA.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Orange pour. Aroma is soapy, with some nice grapefuit and citrus hops. Flavor was quite bitter, some nice astringent flavor as well. Solid DIPA.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Clear orange pour with a decent beige head. Aroma is pine, toffee, and grapefruit. Taste is toffee, pine, grapefruit, and lemon. Has a resonating bitter finish. Smooth body, this beer has some age and has perhaps lost some of its edge but is still nice.
